HKBU Council Dinner in Honour of Honorary Doctorate Recipients 2018
On 19 November, HKBU conferred Honorary Doctoral degrees on Dr. Doreen Chan Hui Dor-lam, Dr. Philip Chen Nan-lok, Dr. Ko Wing-man, Professor Michael Schudson and Professor Shi Yigong at the 59th Commencement and Honorary Doctoral Degrees Conferment Ceremony in recognition of their outstanding and professional achievements in their fields and remarkable contributions to society.

The University hosted its Council Dinner in honour of Honorary Doctorate Recipients after the Conferment Ceremony held in the afternoon. Chairman of the Council and the Court Mr. Cheng Yan-kee introduced the Honorary Doctorate Recipients and conveyed his heartfelt congratulations in his welcome remarks.

As Chairman Cheng will retire by the end of 2018 from the post of Chairman of the Council and Court, President Roland Chin, in appreciation of his tremendous contribution to the University over 20 years, gave a vote of thanks to him. On behalf of the University, senior management presented a photo painting which was specially crafted by the award-winning alumna Calla Lui (Visual Arts) as a memento to Chairman Cheng.

The finale of the evening was a delightful musical and singing performance by Mr. Stephen Wong and Mr. Martin Choy, both of them being lecturers of Department of Music as well as Miss Joyce Chan, student of the Department of Music. Their stunning performance brought all guests a very enjoyable night.

HKBU Management leads the guests to congratulate the newly conferred Honorary Doctorate Recipients at a toasting ceremony.
